How to pay into your current account
You can pay into your current account at a Nationwide branch, by transfer or using a cash machine found inside or directly outside of a Nationwide branch.
You can pay in any amount over the counter with your current account card, or with identification like your passport or driving licence.
If you have a FlexDirect current account and want to use the branch counter, you need to deposit at least £300 in cash or cheques.
If another person wants to pay you, they’ll need to make a transfer from their own account using your name, sort code and account number.
From another account
Anyone – including you – can pay into your current account from another bank or building society account. All that’s needed is your name, sort code and account number.
You can find your sort code and account number on:
- the front of your Nationwide card
- the top of your current account statement
- the Banking app, under your current account’s name
- the Internet Bank, under your current account’s name
- each cheque in your chequebook.
At a cash machine
Insert the current account card you want to pay into at a Nationwide branch’s cash machine, then choose the option to make a deposit.

You’re given an envelope from the cash machine to put your cash and cheques into, which you then feed back into the machine.
